To acknowledge how a vibrant arts and culture community leads to personal and economic growth for all, TD Wealth – Thor Wealth Management Group is working with Quest Art to sponsor three prestigious art prizes for our 2020 annual juried exhibition, with a focus on the environment.
Artists will be asked to create submissions that reflect the material and ecological consequences of what the role of the artist is, and can be, in this new age of the “Anthropocene”, a recently proposed term indicating that we have entered a new geologic era in which human impact on the planet measures at the scale of the geologic. We will be challenging artists as to how they can respond to this unprecedented moment of ecological crisis.
A national open call to Canadian artists, this investment in the arts helps to ensure rural or remote communities have access to high quality programming through exposure to some of Canada’s best works of art.
Submission deadline is November 30, 2020
The exhibition will be presented online.
All media/approaches are welcome.
